Miro's Comments: Plenty of cheese but it has that round thing that makes it seem like it was stamped out of a machine.  Where is the love?
Elizabeth's Comments: Not all that cheesy and has that fake, overly round look.

Miro's Comments: I had to drive this thing home, I am now sweating oregano. 
Elizabeth's Comments: I was worried when I walked past the box because the overwhelming "stinky feet" smell but up close it's not as strong.  There are also hints of herb.

Miro's Comments: Apparently I need one of those warming bags when I'm picking up a pizza to drive it home.

Miro's Comments: Plenty of it on my slice and a blend that has nice cheese flavor.  Half a point off for lack of toasting on top. 
Elizabeth's Comments: Not that much of it and it's super chunky, not stringy.

Miro's Comments: Real flavor in the sauce.  There is the love.
 Elizabeth's Comments: I like that it has real tomatoes but it also has some not pleasant flavors and smells that I can't identify.

Miro's Comments: Really disappointing.  Not much crunch or chew, it's more like a soft flatbread.

Miro's Comments: Impressive and tasty, but not quite All-Star.  I think in the future I may order a pie well-done and it may be the perfect pizza.
Elizabeth's Comments: Meh.  Some unusual tastes I can't identify, a lack of cheese, on a flimsy, undercooked crust.

Miro's Comments: I was trying so hard to be a perfect delivery guy on this one, apparently it is an art I can't master, I always get the pizza home cold.
Elizabeth's Comments: Our living room smells so bad!

Miro's Comments: Surprisingly greasy fit such a fancy place. Elizabeth
says it just needs to set. She may be right but I'm hungry.
Elizabeth's Comments: This pizza, overall, looks very tasty but there is a very inconsistent cheese distribution (sorry about the lack of pic, we're a little rusty)

Overall Comments
Miro's Comments: The service was so catastrophically off, that I have to
think it was an exception
Elizabeth's Comments: The 4.25 is mainly for the pizza.  The restaurant is kind of lacking in the service department.  It took us 15+ mins to get approached, drinks took forever, and our server asked if I wanted a refill then reappeared dozens of times without it - I finished my pizza - parched - long before iced tea or waters refills ever arrived.

Miro's Comments: Floppy. Is it weird that the word that comes to my mind is floppy.

Very cheesy! But, also very greasy a little worried about it slipping off.

Cheese & faint hints of spice - not at all as greasy smelling as it looks

Miro's Comments:
A little thin on the cheese and not much flavor

Elizabeth's Comments:
I'm torn. There is a lot of it, but, it's very greasy and it's got a crumbly texture to it.

Miro's Comments:
That's where those herbs were hiding. I don't care if it's from a can or not.
I like it

Elizabeth's Comments:
Oregano! I taste an actual spice I can name! It's not generic "spice." That said, the tomato part is rather thin, as is the coating of sauce in general.

Crust

Miro's Comments:
It was pretty floppy in the middle, but that's fine. The edges are doughy
where I was yearning for some snap. If a pie is going to be this doughy, the
crust better have really well developed flavor.

Elizabeth's Comments:
Wimpy. This pizza does not stand up on it's own, the grease means you need to fold over the slice to eat it but it has a nice, clean, fresh taste to it that is different than the frozen crusts we usually get.

Overall Taste

Miro's Comments:
Benefits from a flavorful sauce and good size, but suffers from the lack of
flavor and volume on the cheese. I think a touch longer in the oven would be
more to my taste.

Elizabeth's Comments:
Really good for being really greasy. I wish the cheese was smoother and there was a bit more sauce.

Miro's Comments:
This is one of those pizzas where price makes all the difference. At a buck
less it would be a steal.

Elizabeth's Comments:
If this place is open late, it's probably dangerous to know it exists for
those walks home from ... ummmm ... studying when all you want is a greasy slice of pizza.
